I am concerned that H. Pylori might be the cause of my IBS symptoms. My wife was diagnosed with it about six weeks ago and was treated. She is doing great now that the H. Pylori is gone. No one knows how she got the bacteria. I am wondering if she might have got it from me because I had symptoms long before she did.Soft stool that smells bad,Bloating and burping no matter what I eat or how much,Reflux that is unexplained,and other symptoms have been chronic with me.I had a blood test for H. Pylori and it was negative but now I have heard the blood test may have been inconclusive.Got a referral to a gastrologist but it will be a about a month before I see this doc.What do you think. Could H. Pilori be the cause of my problems or am I in for another disappointment.
